And with the involvement of about 200 delegates, this Environmental Summit would send strong signal that the future generations are very much in the sustainable agenda.
The principle lies on the belief that the ‘protection and conservation of the environment and its sustainability’ does not follow political nor economic agenda. Each and every individual, companies, societies , organization, and the government, play serious role and that commitment and accountability must follow compliance. The objectives well set, the aim is to have this planet safe and secured for the future generations.
Each and every human beings are part of this earth. Corporations are the major players – they are putting the gears to economic prosperity regardless of their stature. Government set the laws, rules and regulations. Societies form the human structure to promote and campaign.
To define each and every responsibilities allow complete and total engagement. The path to follow and progress carry with it great challenges and dedication.
Each and every country in the world mastered different approaches and strategies with ultimate aim of measured success. However, no governments in this planet are able to get the right formula that would result to collective and aggregate solutions, cooperation even collaboration. There are a lot of re-thinking, planning and expert assessments.
“The 1st World Environment Summit” gather the most influential figures and major players whose positions made them environment experts and decision makers. They have powers provided to execute implementations; provide measures; give intelligent solutions and promulgate laws.
In this Summit, the determination to engage and exchange expertise, share environmental success and failures , show participation and cooperation and find collaborative efforts are factors important and necessary in order to design one form of environmental architecture and structure that would attract the Middle East countries to seek forceful solutions to the deteriorating environmental situations in this region.
The Organisers are tasks to bring together the greatest minds who are prepare to discuss, confront , expand in order to create ultimate landscape and offer strategic solutions to the problems and bring difference to the deteriorating conditions of our environment. This Summit offers the right platform to disengage from political controversies yet focus on how environment and economic growth must form a balance. That progress can be achieved without sacrificing the environment and its sustainability. The opportunity to interact and exchange views between business colleagues and associates bringing collaborative efforts for business expansion and cooperation.
World leaders all over the world understand that the need to pressure each other, to raise and agree to the issues confronting environment problems be it rising sea levels, oil spill, climate change, floods and deforestation. The need to use alternatives like solar energy, wind powers etc.
Each government to allocate funding to secure the environment budget to be spent in the preservation of marine resources, wildlife, protected species, research and development, education and so on. Pool together resources and solve the most pressing environment issues.
Meanwhile, to use the media in the dissemination of right information, news, legislation or laws. Focus and write on environmental activities and print following the right professional and ethical standards; not camouflaged stories.
The Organisers and the Summit Advisory & Executive Committee believe that this gathering would bring common understanding and engaged solutions ; participate and cooperate; deepen the initiatives of all concerned countries and leaders, draw the right road map and uphold the commitment and accountabilities for the sake and welfare of the future generation.
